Leadership Development Program

The AFSA/UNC leadership 6-day intensive program provides an opportunity to invest in the development of your organization's future leaders. With challenging case studies and lively discussions, role-playing and team building exercises, your employees will hone their leadership, strategic thinking and performance skills and "think outside the box." This fast-paced program allows participants to immerse themselves in innovative principles of management and leadership through class discussions, case analyses, ethics, professional presentations, negotiations, experience change simulation and the outdoor team building exercise. Always a highlight of this program is the power of networking with new acquaintances - the future leaders of our industry. 

Due to recent developments with COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Leadership Development Program. We anticipate the 2021 program will offer similar sessions as outlined in the 2020 brochure. If you have any inquiries, please reach out to info@afsaef.org
